The following events occur every year. Additional events are shown in the calendar below and on social media.

Fall Semester

Tailgating at Home Football Games

Clemson Recycling has a table located in front of Fike Recreation Center. We hand out recycling bags, answer questions, and teach fans about game day recycling. We almost always have some giveaways for those who come talk to us!

Solid Green Day

Solid Green Day is a litter pick-up event scheduled the week after the homecoming football game - the traffic on campus and the Greek Life "float" build on Bowman Field can leave litter behind, and we get together to clean it up!

America Recycles Day

America Recycles Day is a Keep America Beautiful event to promote recycling across the country. If you’d like to take the pledge, check out America Day's website for more information

Spring Semester


  • RecycleMania is a nationwide competition between over 600 universities across the nation to divert as much material from the landfill as possible. Universities can compete against other universities or against themselves to improve their recycling rates and volumes.
  • RecycleMania takes place for 8 weeks during spring semester.
  • Students, faculty, and staff can get involved by reducing, reusing, and recycling and by participating in our RecycleMania events!

Sustainability Week

The first week in March is Sustainability Week. Departments and organizations across campus come together to promote sustainability at Clemson through educational and outreach events.

Earth Day

Earth Day is April 22 every year. Take the day to appreciate our planet and do something to help it stay amazing! Check out the Earth Day website for more
